Ck Eng light probably not related.
The heater core is clogged. A bottle of cooling system "quick flush" may be all you need ($6 AutoZone).
There is also a complete flush system, but requires that you splice into the heater hose (I installed it on my Taurus - works great!).

By the way, there is a heater core bypass hose. It is connected to the two heater core hoses near the firewall. You may want to remove the two "Tee" fittings and use a 5/8" hose splicer so that the flush passes through the heater core at full force. Put the Tee's back in place after the flush.

If you remove the tee fittings and don't flush, the heater will work, but the core may eventually start leaking.

I HAVE A 2003 LINCOLN NAVIGATOR. I HAVE NO HEAT AND IT IS BLOWING OUT COLD AIR. I CHANGED THE THERMOSTAT, AND 2 AIR TEMPERATURE CONTROL SENSORS, AND DID A FLUSH. I STILL HAVE NO HEAT. I NEED HELPPP PL


Most ductwork doors are controlled with actuator motors that open or close flap doors. These doors change the amount of heated air that enters the system as well as where it goes such as the floor or defrost. There are probably 6-8 of them on the system. My guess is that one of these actuator motors is not working due to its age.

How do i flush the heater core on the 2007 ford tarus


you may have air in coolant system you should have a bleeding point somewhere and good idea to change pressure cab too.
Just becarefull engine coolant and heating system is a pressurized system that works on high temp. can cause a serious injuries!!Safety.
you need to run the car on idle with heat on at high speed and open and close the bleeding valve with proper size and long reach tool
till no air bubbles comeout make sure you run the car enough that thermostat opened and engine run on normal operation temp. for a while.good luck.

Engine heats up but takes a long time for warm air to blow. Once working, the thermostat works fine. Sometimes, warm air starts to blow and then goes cooler.


low fluid level or heater control valve may need replace..check hoses going to heater core...if cold...between heater control valve and heater core..replace control valve

02 stratus with the 3.0 liter in it, noticed the heat was getting weak, then changed the thermostat and now theres no heat and the coolant level is full, please help


New thermostat may be faulty. May be stuck open. Remove rad cap and with rad full and eng cold - start vehicle. The coolant should not circulate until eng reaches design temp of thermostat. Let me know if this helps you.

Does not blow hot air


1st off check your (cold) radiator (not the overflow tank) make sure it's
full, next locate heater hoses at firewall with eng. warmed up hold both
hoses 1hose should be hot going into the the other just a little cooler
coming out when it's working right but if 1 hose is hot and the return
is just warm you may have a restriction possibly plugged heater core
now if both hoses are warm not hot it could be thermostat is not closing
properly there is also the heater ctrl. valve but i don't know if you have
a mechanical- electric or vacum operated valve.
ps do these tests with eng at operating temp. fan on med. temp set on
hot. any other ? gimme a shout good luck

Why my heater in 2000 plymouth breeze only gives a little heat? Could it be a hose ? I know it's not the thermostat,the blowers ar working. I am wonding if theres some hoses that could be leaking?I don't...


it could be the cold air blend door or the thermostat is the engine temp up to the middle of the gauge or close to it if so then thermostat is ok if not then go ahead and replace it.
